I've found this website where you have to write and paste (!) Arabic text for Photoshop, but I need a better one with more language abilities. Anything in mind?

Enable Middle Eastern features

To reveal Middle Eastern type options in the Photoshop interface, do the following:

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences > Type (Windows) or Photoshop > Preferences > Type (Mac OS).
  2. In the Choose Text Engine Options section, select Middle Eastern.
  3. Click OK, and restart Photoshop.
  4. Choose Type > Language Options > Middle Eastern features.

Text direction

To create content in Arabic and Hebrew, you can make the right-to-left (RTL) direction the default text direction. However, for documents that include left-to-right (LTR) text, you can now seamlessly switch between the two directions.

Select the paragraph direction from the Paragraph panel.

You can simply go to :

Photoshop > preferences > Type

Then you can see 2 buttons on the right side.

Select "Middle Eastern and South Asian" and reopen photoshop. Then you can type RTL with no problem.

  • It doesn't always work, but that's the proper way of doing it.
